My First Foodie Pen Pal!

Since I moved to Charleston, I've been trying to get my "foodie" side in gear with all of the great restaurants around town.  Let's be real, maybe I wasn't a foodie before because if you look up foods famous by state, for Connecticut you'll find a steamed cheeseburger or pizza you can get in any other state and for RI you'll find hotdogs... no joke [but seriously, what else do I expect from a state where the state bird is a chicken and the state flower is a weed?].

Moral of the story, I could not wait to join Foodie Pen Pals and share some Charleston awesome-ness with a new friend.  I was paired with Kelcie from Hammers and Hot Plates who is also a newlywed!  She and her husband, Andrew, put together a fantastic package with goodies that all had a story and are from their home state of Oklahoma!

They even sent Mike and me this beautiful 3-year journal to complete together with questions on tons of different topics!

In return, I sent Kelcie a few of my favorites and some new Charleston finds I found in the city.  You can check out more about what I sent her on her blog

I cannot wait to participate again next month!  Thanks to Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean for hosting!
